4 Days
Tirana

This active 4-day tour of Valbona and Theth in the heart of the Albanian Alps and the so-called ‘accursed mountains’ takes you to Lake Koman, Valbona Valley and Theth village, and is a great combination of stunning nature, warm Albanian hospitality and the mystic traditions and folklore of this region.

Tour Details

With the magnificent mountain scenery as your backdrop, you’ll be kayaking on Lake Koman and do one of the most panoramic hikes in northern Albania on a historic trail from Valbona to Theth, a path that has been used for centuries for trade and exchanging goods.

To add to your authentic experience of Albania, you stay at traditional, family based guesthouses where you usually get welcomed not as a customer, but rather as a family guest.

Itinerary

Day 1Tirana - Kayaking in Koman - Berisha Village

Be ready for an early start as we leave Tirana at 05:00 to drive toward Lake Koman to catch a ferry that departs at 09:00 to the other side of the lake, Fierza. After reaching Berisha village, our base for the night, we head out on Lake Koman on kayaks with a dramatic backdrop scenery of densely forested hills, vertical slopes, and deep gorges. We’ll be back at the guesthouse around 13:00 for lunch, after which you have free time for some more kayaking on this stunning lake. Dinner and overnight in Berisha.

Day 2Berishe - Valbona Valley

Heading back the same way we came, we catch a bus and a ferry at 10:20 to the other dock of the lake. The drive from Fierza to Valbona takes around 45 min passing through the town of Bajram Curri, the gateway to Valbona Valley. After a lunch break in Valbona, we gear up for a little hiking trip in Kukaj. This hike to this very remote area in Valbona Valley where it’s still all about self-sufficient living takes about 1-2 hours and is a great warm-up for the big hike tomorrow. Dinner and overnight in Valbona.

Day 3Hiking from Valbona - Theth

Also called as the Big Day of the tour, we now set off on the thrilling hike from Valbona to Theth following the ancient path that the locals have been using for years. Back in the days, it was only possible to travel from Valbona to Shkoder on foot taking two full days of walking! Walking on this path we will pass through the oldest part of the village where people are still living in their more than 100-year-old stone houses that are remarkable remnants of the past.
The 20-km trek offers spectacular views of long rocky valleys and lush green forests. We stop for lunch at one of the traditional cafés along the way, but do stock up on snacks just in case. After trekking for about 7-8 hours we arrive in Theth that will for sure amaze us with its unique nature, history, and traditions including the village’s symbol, the Lock-In Tower.
Overnight and dinner at the guesthouse.

Day 4Theth - Shkoder - Tirana

After breakfast at the guesthouse, the beautiful Gurnas waterfall, located around a 45-min walk from the center of the village, is our last stop before leaving Theth behind. It’s about a 3-hour drive to Shkoder with a lunch stop on the way. You will have free time to explore Shkoder before hopping on our private and comfortable transport to journey onwards to Tirana where the tour ends in the evening.

Went to Albania last year because a friend showed me photos of the food. We decided to do a small hiking tour in the mountains and the scenery was GORGEOUS. Felt like I was in Skyrim or Lord of the Rings. If you like waking up in a cabin facing the mountain slopes with blue skies in a valley, look no further. I was really impressed by the farm to table food on the trip, everything was fresh, simple, and delicious. The star of the show was our guide Andy who patiently helped us navigate the trails. He had many stories and knowledge of Albanian culture. He was also passionate about food and showed us interesting berries, local foods, and restaurants. Thank you Andy for not only being the best tour guide but also a friend in a beautiful country.
